Today is Thursday, December 20, 2012. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 65 degrees.
This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mrs. Zacharias' class to lead us with the pledge.
Next week we will be joined by Mr. Plunkett's third grade for the pledge.
December 20th is officially, "Go Caroling Day".
On this day in 1606, The Virginia Company loads three ships with settlers and sets sail to establish Jamestown, Virginia, the first permanent English settlement in the Americas. Also, in 1803, The Louisiana Purchase is completed at a ceremony in New Orleans.
An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, the fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red:
Caring means helping those in need. RSU students have really shown that they care this holiday season by participating in the Can-Do Food Drive.
Today marks the end Can-Do Food drive. We currently have 1,033 cans. Please send any and all remaining cans to Ms. Isherwood's class immediately. We have to have all 1,000+ cans ready to be picked up by 11:00 today. At tomorrow's assembly, we will announce the final can total. Thanks to everyone for their terrific efforts and showing that you care.
I know I've used this quote before, but it fits the occasion, according to American author, Frank A. Clark, "Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out."
Tomorrow will be the last RSU Spirit Assembly for 2012! Let's change things up tomorrow by wearing either your RSU colors, or your favorite Holiday Season attire. Mrs. Frank and I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow morning in the RSU Quad of Character.
This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
